They are held for all ages for free in an intimate environment with a small audience. They usually feature bands in many types of rock and hip-hop genres. MySpace Secret Shows tour the U.S. but are also in the U.K. [3], Australia [4], Japan [5], Canada [6], France [7], and Germany [8]. Each event is sponsored by Chili's and MySpace in association with Best Buy in the U.S. The performances, hailed as the most succesful MySpace franchise [9], were started to bring great bands around the U.S., but now they are international.
